Heather Langenkamp

Highest Rated: 94% A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

Lowest Rated: 0% Truth or Dare (2017)

Birthday: Jul 17, 1964

Birthplace: Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA

This attractive, youthful leading lady of film and TV effectively conveys strength and intelligence while compelling audience sympathy. Langenkamp gained some small measure of fame and a place in genre film history playing Nancy Thompson, the determined and resourceful heroine of Wes Craven's "Nightmare on Elm Street" series (beginning in 1984), battling dream monster Freddy Krueger. Though she had starred in one previous feature--playing a rural, unwed teenaged mother in the little-seen "Nickel Mountain" (1983)--horror auteur Craven proved central to her slight film career. Langenkamp starred in the Craven co-scripted "A Nightmare on Elm Street III: Dream Warriors" (1987), played the victim in Craven's "Shocker" (1989) and starred as herself in "Wes Craven's New Nightmare" (1994).

Dr. Neil Goldman says: Sure, Phillip. Go ahead.

Nancy Thompson says: What did you do, mother?

Nancy Thompson says: Hi, daddy. I know what happened.

Lt. Thompson says: I haven't been upstairs yet.

Glen Lantz says: What did I do?

Nancy Thompson says: I just asked you to do one thing, to stay awake and watch me and to wake me up if it looked like I was having a bad dream, and what did you do, you sh*t? You fell asleep!

Nancy Thompson says: I'm into survival.
